« Part 9: Staining the Table Part 10 of Current Project series Part 11: The Table has left the workshop (or) Tables and Tribulations »

My statement from the last blog post is still true. The table is saved. I swear the learning curve on this project is straight up. I have had such trouble putting the final finish on the table top, plus the weather, (I’m working outside under a canopy), plus other chores… I still expect to get the table delivered this weekend, although rain is predicted for Saturday!

I kept getting nothing but brush strokes trying to put the final finish on. I sanded, but when I got the brush strokes out, I was back down to the stain in spots. So now I’m doing wipe on poly. It seems to be working OK. Someone send me Joe Lerario!

Well, you can’t go wrong with a “wipe on” finish, they’re usually so thin that they flow out like water & create a nice smooth surface.

The ones I’ve had success with, and have stayed with since i tried them, are Arm R Seal and Minwax antique oil finish.

Good luck on the delivery.
